Also 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Nf3 Nc6 6.Bf4 Nf6 7.e3 Be7.
Note that in Alatortsev's mover order White also has 8.Nge2 iso 8.Nf3, as recommended by GM Schandorff.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

It’s playable, but you need to look at two related openings which could transpose if white plays d4xc5 on move 8 or 9. Usually in these other systems black would prefer to answer c4xd5 with ...Nf6xd5.
  • D37 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 Be7 5.Bf4 O-O 6.e3 c5 7.dxc5
  • E39 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Qc2 c5 5.dxc5 O-O 6.Nf3 Bxc5 7.Bf4
In your move order 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Be7 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Bf4 Nf6 6.e3 O-O I wonder if white should prefer 7.Nf3, 7.Qc2, or even 7.h3!?

Some analysis at ChessPub introduced me to another interpretation of 3...Be7.

1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Be7!? 4. cxd5 exd5 5. Bf4 Nf6!?

Black is in no hurry to commit to either Bf5 or c6. For example, 6. e3 O-O 7. Bd3 c5!? 8. Nf3 Nc6 9. O-O c4 10. Bc2. Now ...Nh5, or ...Bg4 look to be about equal.

Correcting myself ! If g4 then Be6, if Nge2 / g3, then Be6. The main reference I could find is below:

An old post to comment on but anyway....I think Black is recommended to retreat the B to e6 in most lines precisely to avoid White's play based on h4.

Hello!

I would like to hear your opinions on the following line:

1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Be7 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Bf4 c6 6.e3 Bf5 7.Nge2 Nd7 8.Ng3 (8.g4 is played more often, but there Black has found convincing ways to get good positions imo) Bg6 9.Be2 Ngf6 10.h4 h5 (...h6 11.h5 Bh7 12.Bd3 looks rather dangerous, as Nf5 will force Black to castle and White can open the kingside with g4-g5) 11.Rc1 (Novelty?) Qb6 (11...Nb6 12.0-0 Bd6 13.Re1 Bxf4 14.exf4 0-0 15.f5 Bh7 16.Bxh5 and
11...Nf8 12.Bg5 Ne6 13.Bxf6 Bxf6 14.Bxh5 Bxh4 15.Bxg6 fxg6 16.Nge2 Kf7 seem to be a bit better for White) 12.0-0 0-0 13.Nxh5 Qxb2 14.Nxf6+ Nxf6 (unclear?).

At first glance, he positions arising from this line (8.Ng3, 11.Rc1) seem to give White the easier game. Which line would you play with Black?
